MURDER MOST ROMANTIC

Cumberland House, February 2001
ISBN: 1581821565

The words murder and romance seldom appear together. If given a choice, most of us would prefer them to be as far apart as possible. But there is no denying that an edge of danger can heighten tension, intensify emotions, and make every moment a treasure to be seized, since it might be the last chance to experience anything at all.

The collection of stories in Murder Most Romantic is aobut romance experienced in the teeth of mortal danger, when every decision is life-or-death and the smallest mistake could kill you. It is said that love is at its most intense when it is threatened, and when that threat is mortal, murder and romance can combine to build emotions to a fever pitch.

Many award-winning writers have joined together in creating the new and original stories in Murder Most Romantic. From Laura Resnick's heart-stopping tale of a honeymoon gone very wrong to Dine Stuckart's look at the scary side of the cyber world, to D. E. Meredith's story of love and death in smalltown Texas and beyond, every contribution adds a new twist. This collection of heart-stopping romance includes:

"Homicidal Honeymoon" by Laura Resnick, "The Scottish Ploy" by P.N. Elrod, "www.gonnhavekelly.com" by Diane A. S. Stuckart, "The Perfect Man" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, "Celtic Cross" by Yvonne Jocks, "Hostage to Love" by Mary Watson, "Dizzy and the Biker" by Susan Sizemore, "Night Hawks" by Jody Lynn Nye, "Keeper of the Well" by Deb Stover, "Dearly Beloved" by D.
